A stray plastic interrupts MRT service on Easter day
MANILA, Philippines – Service was interrupted on the northbound line of the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) line 3 after a plastic material got entangled in the catenary wire, which supplies power to the train system, according to MRT spokesperson Hernando Cabrera.
Cabrera said, “They had to put off the power while they were removing the plastic that fell from the footbridge.” Because of the power outage, passengers had to be vacated from the train.
He said the northbound line of the railway system was not operational from 3:28 – 4:20 pm on April 8, Easter day.
The incident occurred between Boni and Shaw MRT3 stations.
Cabrera said the MRT3 resumed normal operation after the plastic was removed. – Rappler.com
